It would be really helpful to have thread descriptions available in bugreport.txt.

I can set this using the Windows 10 API: ... escription

Where in the MadExcept source code is the best place a place to add GetThreadDescription to display it alongside the Thread ID ?

I have now found SetThreadInfo and made a change to add it to the implementation section of madExcept.pas so that I can call it after creating threads. The ones I need to show in bugreport.txt are actually created in a Microsoft C DLL which can already call some functions in the main Delphi program. This works well!

There's already an API exported by madExcept.pas called "NameThread()":

Code: Select all

// to make the bug report more readable, you can name your secondardy threads
procedure NameThread (threadId: dword; const threadName: UnicodeString);
Internally it calls "SetThreadInfo".
